As some of us now have possible 2 iPads or perhaps a Iphone and iPads etc when using iTunes I have a couple of questions, which perhaps someone who is more conversant with iTunes, can possibly enlighten me a little.
I have one account with iTunes, and everything is currently stored in one library on my Data Hard drive, my wife has a iPad1 and I'm now using a iPad3 both are 64gb 3G models, so tend to have lots of films on there as well, in effect keeping my fav films on it for when we go away etc. and occasionally at home.
Currently both iPads have exactly the same apps and films on them. When I use a particular iPad it obviously pops up with the devices name, one being named iPad-1 and the other iPad-3, the same library being used for both.
I assume, one would need a totally different account if one desired to have totally different libraries. ?
IOW lets say, my wife wanted her own type of apps, her choice of music, and her own favourite films etc and anything else for that matter, am I right in thinking the only way to achieve that would be to have 2 totally separate iTune libraries installed on my hard-drive, maybe needing 2 different accounts ?
I've noticed, one can selectively tick or untick items from the backup iTunes library on the hard-drive and it will remember those settings between devices, but the whole library contents are obviously always shown on both... I'm thinking one would have to have 2 totally different libraries, to avoid that. ie. each device having it's own library.
Can any of you iTunes experts clarify a little on this ? I confess, though quite technical, I'm certainly no expert when it comes to iTunes..lol, so any clarification, regarding having different stuff installed on different devices would be much appreciated.. please enlighten me...lol
My apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere on the forum. :-) which it likely has.. I've just not found it.. ;-)
